Field-Proven Performance
and Reliability
Our commitment to the future of the industry is
demonstrated by our significant investment in facilities,
product and process improvements. They include the
installation of the industrys most sophisticated coating
system, which results in a long-life paint finish you dont
have to worry about. We have also invested in new core
and coil designs, tank fabrication and state-of-the-art
test equipmentall designed to increase transformer
reliability, cut losses, and save you money.
We participate on industry committees and with related
technical groups to preserve and improve the industry
and its level of technology. This is evident by the long
list of innovations and new products we have introduced.
In 1958 RTE introduced the industrys first single-phase
pad-mounted transformer for underground distribution.
A few years later the three-phase pad-mounted
transformer was introduced.
This commitment to innovation is still apparent today with
our continuing development of new products, including
the Single-Phase Pad-Mounted Voltage Regulator, providing all the functionality of the traditional round tank
regulator with the convenience of pad mounting; the
*FM Approved Transformer, the first Code Listed &
Labeled liquid-filled transformer; the VFI Transformer
that combines a conventional transformer with the Kyle
Vacuum Fault Interrupter to provide voltage transformation and overcurrent protection in one space-saving,
money-saving package; and the Envirotran Transformer
that is filled with Envirotemp FR3, an edible seed oilbased dielectric coolant that combines the benefits of
enhanced fire-safety with the superior environmental
characteristics of edible oils.

A World-Renowned
Resource
The Thomas A. Edison Technical Center, one of the
most respected high-voltage research and development
centers in the world, supports our new products and
materials development and testing. Both electrical
utilities and industrial complexes draw on the expertise
and knowledge of the highly skilled engineers at the
Center for site studies, measurements on new and
existing electrical systems,
diagnostic software,
measurement equipment,
workshops and
technical assistance.

Quality Construction
Produces Quality Products
High Performance
Inside and Out
Our transformers cores and coils are designed to
provide the best field performance. Precision machinery
is used to cut the core to exacting measurements.
Burr-free, silicon steel optimizes core loss efficiency.
Coils are wound with the highest quality electrical grade
epoxy coated, thermally upgraded kraft paper. Computer
controlled winding machines provide exacting
tension control and conductor
placement for superior
short-circuit strength and
maximum efficiency.
Each coil is pressed and
baked to fuse thermoset
epoxy adhesives, for
stronger coils with
superior dielectric
properties. Each core
and coil assembly is
clamped under pressure
to further assure mechanical integrity. Excellent shortcircuit test results verify our design, production
processes and equipment.
Our transformers are also designed for exterior longevity.
Tanks are cut using computerized equipment, producing
error-free cutouts. Full-welded external parts eliminate
corrosion caused by moisture entrapment. Our tank
coating systems include processes such as corrosionresistant epoxy primer (E-Coat), impact-and abrasionresistant polyester powder coat (P-Coat), and a urethane
top coat that seals and protects the finish from ultraviolet
rays. Our durable coating systems exceed ANSI and
CSA/CEA Standards, and more importantly, provide
years of maintenance-free service.

Todays Solution:
Not Tomorrows
Problem
Our transformers can be filled with standard
electrical grade mineral insulating oil, R-Temp fluid,
or Envirotemp FR3 fluid.
For fire-sensitive locations, our transformers can be
filled with R-Temp fire-resistant natural hydrocarbon
fluid, or Envirotemp FR3 fluid, a fire-resistant natural
ester-based fluid. Envirotemp FR3 fluid offers the
environmental benefits of an edible seed oil-based
dielectric coolant with food grade additives. In addition,
it provides increased fire safety and insulation life when
compared to conventional mineral oil.
All transformers are filled using a vacuum-process filling
procedure that heats, dries and vacuum impregnates the
transformer, removing moisture more effectively than other
dryout systems.

A Wide Array of
Protection Options
Cooper Power Systems manufactures a complete line
of transformer components and accessories. Four
complete fuse product linesRTE, McGraw-Edison,
Kearney and Combined Technologies, Inc. provide
complete fusing protection for any application. Surge
arresters designed by Cooper employ the latest technology, giving you all the overvoltage protection that you
need. The VFI (Vacuum Fault Interrupter) developed by
Kyle incorporates the latest electronic technology in
transformer and loop overcurrent protection. Developed
with our transformers in mind, these products provide
optimum flexibility and transformer performance.

Reliability and
Quality
The quality of design, materials and workmanship of a
transformers core and coil assembly and its tank and
cabinet are basic to its long term performance and
durability. Transformer connectors, switches and protective equipment also play an important role in transformer
reliability. Cooper transformers utilize componentry
designed, manufactured and tested by Cooper. We are
the only manufacturer with such depth and breadth of
in-house component manufacturing capability. Not only
does this level of internal component sourcing result in
optimally coordinated designs, it also helps guarantee the
quality of each unit we producefrom start to finish.
Advanced quality management, combined with
exhaustive testing, assure our customers of the most
reliable performance and the industrys lowest failure
rate. Our certified manufacturing facility, combined with
our leadership in transformer design, assures the highest
quality transformer.
Completely integrated testing of each transformer results
in the most reliable performance in the industry. All
transformers are tested according to ANSI C57.12.90
and include the following tests:

Impulse

Applied potential

Induced potential

Loss tests

Leak test

Additional tests are performed on each design, assuring


performance will meet all applicable standards. Testing
includes temperature, audible sound level, tank integrity
and others.

Superior Transformers for


Demanding Applications
FM Approved Transformers are
Code Listed and Labeled to Bring
Power to the Load
The FM Approved and Code Listed R-Tran and Envirotran Transformers are the
industrys first listed and labeled liquid-filled transformers. Factory Mutual Research
Corporations Class 3990 Transformer Approval Standard* makes it easy for specifiers of
indoor and outdoor transformers to comply and verify compliance with the National
Electrical Code (NEC).
FM Approved and Code Listed transformers integrate state-of-the-art
fire safety design and construction that in most cases eliminates the need for fire
vaults, auto sprinklers or special clearances. NEC and FM listing requirements are
simplified, FM Loss Prevention Data Sheet compliance is easier and installation
flexibility is increased. In addition, with the FM Approved logo clearly visible on the
transformer, third party certification of NEC compliance is now readily verifiable by the
local inspector.
FM Approved and Code Listed transformers are available as substation,
pad-mounted and overhead transformers, three-phase and single-phase, with
ratings from 5-10,000 kVA and voltage ratings up to 46 kV. These transformers can
be filled with either R-Temp or Envirotemp FR3 fire-resistant dielectric coolant.
For applications with severe harmonic levels, specify the K-Plus Transformer.
This line of transformers is capable of withstanding constant and severe harmonic
levels of varying degrees, based on the optimal K factor rating selected. For added
fire safety, K-Plus Transformers can be specified FM Approved and Code Listed.

Envirotran Transformers,
for Environmental and
Fire Sensitive Applications
Envirotran Transformers incorporate the latest advancements in liquid-filled transformer
design. This results in a transformer that sets the standard for customers concerned with
evolving environmental regulations, fire safety and overall performance.
Envirotran Transformers use a unique dielectric coolant, Envirotemp FR3, whose base oils
come from a renewable natural resourceseeds. Formulated with food grade performance
enhancing additives, it is non-toxic, non-bioaccumulating and readily biodegradable.
Envirotemp FR3 fluid also has an exceptionally high fire point that provides enhanced fire
safety. It is Classified by Underwriters Laboratories and is Approved by Factory Mutual for
use in indoor and outdoor transformer installations. For added safety, Envirotran Transformers
can also be specified FM Approved and Code Listed per Factory Mutual, making it easier to
comply and verify compliance with the National Electrical Code.
The Envirotran Transformer is ideal for environmentally sensitive areas, which today can be
just about everywhere! It is also ideal for areas where fire safety is a concern such as in or
near buildings, or in public areas such as parks and school grounds.
Envirotran Transformers are available as substation, pad-mounted and overhead transformers,
three-phase and single-phase, with ratings from 5-10,000 kVA and voltage ratings up to 46 kV.
*On August 13, 1999 OSHA announced its official recognition of this standard.

Dielectric Fluid Options for


Every Application
Standard Electrical Grade Mineral Insulating Oil
R-Temp Fire-Resistant Fluid
Envirotemp 200 Fire-Resistant Fluid
Envirotemp FR3 Fire-Resistant Fluid

Cooper Power Systems transformers are available with standard electrical grade mineral
oil or other dielectric coolants manufactured by Cooper Power Systems.
Standard electrical grade mineral insulating oil is tested and degassed to assure a
chemically inert product with minimal acid ions. Special additives minimize oxygen
absorption and inhibit oxidation. To ensure high dielectric strength, the oil is retested for
dryness and dielectric strength, refiltered, heated, dried, and stored under vacuum
before being added to the completed transformer.
R-Temp fluid, manufactured by Cooper Power Systems under strict quality control for
optimum transformer cooling characteristics, has a higher fire point and higher dielectric
strength than mineral oil. The special formulation is less-flammable as defined by the
National Electric Code (NEC) and National Electric Safety Code (NESC). Since its introduction
in 1975 over 100,000 R-Temp fluid-filled transformers have been installed, approaching one
million unit years of service. The fire safety record is flawless. R-Temp fluid is Classified by
Underwriters Laboratories and Approved by Factory Mutual for use in indoor or outdoor
installations.
Envirotemp 200 fluid is a fire-resistant dielectric coolant developed for
applications requiring high performance under extreme temperature conditions. Its unique
formulation provides very low freezing and melting points. It is also a low viscosity fluid with
excellent dielectric, thermal and mechanical properties. These properties make it particularly
well suited for forced liquid cooling operations such as in traction transformers.
Envirotemp FR3 fluid, manufactured by Cooper Power Systems, is a
natural ester based fluid formulated from a renewable natural resource
seeds. The base oils from the seeds are blended with food grade
performance enhancing additives to produce a fluid that has
exceptional fire-resistant properties and favorable environmental
attributes.
Envirotemp FR3 fluid is Classified by Underwriters Laboratories and Approved by Factory Mutual
for use in indoor or outdoor installations. It has an even higher fire point than R-Temp fluid, for an
even greater margin of fire safety.
Plus, Envirotemp FR3 fluid is readily biodegradable and is non-bioaccumulating. Because it
is a seed oil-based fluid it can be differentiated from mineral oil regulation per the Edible Oil
Regulatory Reform Act: Public Law 104-55. This makes it a much more favorable option when
considering environmental risks and regulations.
